Contributors from biological and physical sciences address processes controlling the global environment and how to overcome the disparities in spatial and temporal scales used in different disciplines. A mix of ecologists, other biological scientists, atmospheric scientists, geomorphologists, and marine scientists from 17 countries explore the interactions between the atmospheric, aquatic, and terrestrial components of the biosphere at different scales. Includes descriptions of several different environmental and climate models.
